Ask the Expert.

Do you have questions about the Holocaust? Do you sometimes feel you could do with some additional insights and advice when teaching? Do students ask questions you are uncertain about?  We have some answers for you provided by Holocaust expert Dr. Stephen D. Smith.
StoryFile is a unique technology that allows you to ask an expert questions about their area of expertise. Dr Smith has answered over 150 of the most common questions teachers have about the Holocaust.  Click 'Ask the Expert' on the right to open Stephen's StoryFile. If you are not sure what to ask there are some great hints in the light bulb icon in the bottom left hand corner.  If Dr. Smith does not answer your specific question, please add it in the box below.
